I could watch this imaginative and hallucinatory experimental short film 100 times. Rubber Johnny is the creation of UK film-maker Chris Cunningham. Johnny is a mutant child kept alive living a basement where he mumbles, squeeks and burps to communicate.

Johnny keeps himself amused by shape-shifting, where his body inflates, deflates, squeezes and pops along to the intense soundtrack by regular Cunningham collaborator Aphex Twin. All of this is witnessed by a beady-eyed terrified dog who keeps Johnny company.
